Reserving a Lang Lab

Instructors wanting to bring a class to the labs must have a confirmed reservation. All reservations are made using the online Language Lab Reservation Form (below). After you submit the form, we ill send a confirmation to your LSCS e-mail address. (We cannot send to outside e-mail addresses). It is very important that you open this message & click on ACCEPT to confirm it and to put it into the lab calendar. If you do not accept the invitation, it does not exist. When you get a confirmation request, double-click on the message, click on ACCEPT, then click on SEND to confirm. If you get a subsequent reminder, click on DISMISS. Consult the Outlook help features for more instructions on handling events in the Outlook calendar.

When planning lab visits, please consult the current calendar of reservations for LRNC-210 & LRNC-212 to see which days/times are available. We send the calendars to all languages faculty every Monday. It is best to submit your reservations early (e.g., 2 weeks before the beginning of the semester), as labs fill up fast!

Remember that when you book a lab visit, reservations begin on the hour or the half hour only and actually end 10 minutes before the coming hour or half-hour to make way for the next class.

Faculty who have not attended a lab intro training session and a Sony system training session within the last year will not benefit from additional services.

Remember to arrive on time to your lab visits if you are in need of an orientation or any other kind of assistance from lab coordinators. If you expect and have requested assistance for your visit and you are late by 10 minutes or more, the coordinator assigned to your class will probably have left the room and moved on to another duty and will not return to conduct orientations for late arrivals. If you are not expecting an orientation or any kind of lab staff assistance during your visit, arriving late is not a problem: the room is yours until the end of your reserved visit.

Please be sure to read our lab guidelines and alert your students of them as well. Instructors must be in possession of a printed class roster when visiting the labs during instructed lab times. Also, as a courtesy to your colleagues who may be waiting to use the lab at a time you have already booked, please notify us as soon as possibly of any cancellations. Please have your students leave the lab in the tidy condition your group found it in at your arrival (programs closed, computer arranged properly, headphones on hook, chair pushed in). Finally, as class visits to the lab are considered instructional time, instructors are expected to remain in the lab with their class at all times during their reserved visit. If an instructor is found to have not been present during a significant portion of a class visit, the appropriate supervisor(s) will be notified.
